Close shave with masked shooter


Added 17 August 2015


DONTE ALLEYNE (right) has been counting his lucky stars while reflecting on the close shave he had with masked gunmen on Saturday night at Whitehall No 3, St Michael.

The 18-year-old Allamby Gap, St Michael teenager sustained a gunshot injury to his right calf and was treated and discharged from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday. The shooting also left his cousin Ridge Williams wounded in the buttocks.
